Griffin is Lauren's son.[1]

Griffin is a former boarding school student. He got kicked out of his school for not attending his classes and is sent to live with his mother and soon-to-be-stepfather, Richard, by his high-level executive father who can no longer control him. He is a bit of a bad influence to Sharon, giving her a cigarette to smoke and helping her sneak into a pool after hours.

Griffin is an underachiever, but is talented in both songwriting, rapping and art.


  • According to Lauren, he took the divorce of his parents hard.
  • Richard remembered him as "sensitive".
  • In the episode "Up In Smoke", he is shown to be a smoker, which he gave up after the episode.


  • Griffin is most likely named after the mythological creature that was a combination of eagle and lion.
  • He is first seen via a photo[2].


"Why should I waste my life, listening to these middle aged people, teaching my me things, I'll never have to use in real life?"

"Give it up, Sharon."

"As if you don't have anything better to do. I bet you hate Lauren or at least you barely tolerate her, or I'll probably hate Richard or at least I barely tolerate him."

"I swear all the kids at my new school are total losers."

"Skip the mall. Your friends have a pool?"

"Nighttime swimming is where it's at. There's no lifeguard during the day, is there?"

"You don't have a curfew too, do ya?"

"So now you're pretending to be strict mama?!"

"Fine! But if you and your new boyfriend think you can control me, you're wrong!"

"Thanks for the pep talk, Miss Spitz!"

"Hey, watch it!"

"Scoping babes, what else?"

"You see, my mom and her dad are a thing."

"She's smart, she doesn't let anyone get in her way. So as I put it, yeah, she is my type! Look, I know you two have some sorta history, but could you please put it aside, for me? "Yep, it's all part of the bowling mistake."

"Here, it's like Kryptonite for foot stink."

"Yo, Richard! Hey, Sharon. Come on. I want to show you something!"

"It's Silver-plated. You think Nina will like it?"

"I'm gonna ask Nina to make it exclusive."

"What do you mean? I'm trying to do something classy and romantic."

"I can't believe how stupid I was. I was just a hobby for her!"

"I put on a suit for her."

"Do you know something? Is there another guy?!"

"'Cuz if some guy did this, I'm gonna rearrange his face!"

"Hi, it's me. I can't talk long 'cuz my bus is leaving soon. I'm moving back home to my dad's. I just can't deal with Elkford right now!"

"She doesn't know. She'd only try to stop me. Look, I didn't want to leave without saying goodbye. You're probably my only real friend."

"You can't talk me out of it, so don't even try. I'll drop you an email when I'm settled, OK?

"It's for the best. Take care."

"Sharon, you shouldn't have come down here!"

"I thought you were tired of slumming?!"

"Then why'd you dump me?"

"You?! Why?!"

"That's so incredibly selfish!"

"I thought you were my friend!"

"More like that."


"Well, maybe eventually. Since we're practically family, I guess it's mandatory."

"Nina, that's heavy."

"Hey, Adam let me in."

"Thought I'd drop by on my way home."

"OK. I wanted to talk about Nina."

"Giving you those pictures was her way of saying sorry."

"This is a chance for you two to start over, with a clean slate."

"Wouldn't it be great, if you weren't fighting?! I know It'd be easier on me."

"I bet you used to. Nina kept those photos for a long time. Think about that."

"For sure. You won't regret this!"

"Yeah. You guys talk in stereo."

"Her agent needs new headshots."
